. joining us now, mike baker, former cia covert operations officer. rejoining us once again, gordan chang, the author of, nuclear showdown, north korea takes on the world. mike you know through your experience as a cia officer officer the world is dangerous place. did it get more dangerous last night? >> whether they do something, launch another missile whatever it is they're doing, whether it succeeds or fails it becomes more dangerous because they're learning something else. one of the biggest dangers from the program that the north koreans are running the tech transfer that goes on. there is a very robust underground environment between the north korean, iranian, russian, pakistani scientists and in dealing of nuclear technology. i think that's a very, very dangerous element to this. jon: how do we stop that? >> well the problem is we have very little room left with north korea. we've almost, gotten to the point where we kind of learned to live with this problem and the danger there of course, there are certain people in the administration saying if we can do that with them, certainly

's also another issue with john brennan. do you think he should be the next cia director? >> well i think that's another issue and another position that is, you know, everybody's a little bit fuzzy on right now. i think you need to have more questions be answered on his nomination as well. so we'll see. bill: it appears the questions on brennan go directly to the u.s. policy on drones. we had rand paul on yesterday, the senator from kentucky. he is adamant that he will not allow brennan to go forward unless he answers a simple question. and that is, whether or not it is u.s. policy and u.s. law to use a drone over american skies and target americans here at home. what is your view on that? >> well, bottom line, i think senator paul has every right to have his questions answered. you're putting someone in a position in the cia that obviously is going to be making decisions that affect everyday americans not only here but abroad. he has that right to have those questions answered. we need to have a full disclosure from the administration as to what the policy is going to be. listen, i don't

than expected and deliver it to a target. now the cia, pentagon, all has to look at this to determine what they set off and essentially now work backward. if it was a miniaturized bomb, what did it take north korea to get there? where did they get the technology, the engineering, the expertise, the money to do it? they will look at what it would have taken north korea to achieve what they say they achieved and try to figure out how they did it and who might have helped them. zoraida. >> has theyou say there. there has been of skepticism in where this program is right now. >> the u.s. has been skeptical for years. in december, they successfully launched a long-range ballistic missile, now a successful underground nuclear test. so they are achieving some level of expertise in their technology, and engineering. and that is vital if they are getting the help potentially and we don't know from iran, from pakistan. these are key issues. there might be people in those countries helping them, and is north korea then sharing what it knows? it's expertise now, back with countries like iran? >>

hagel and brennan, defense and cia, just in the last week their performance in front of the committees that have to confirm them has been pretty poor. that's, you know, not my judgment. that's the judgment, as well, of senators on both sides of the aisle. my guess is if you look at what the president's motives are for picking chuck headachel l-- chu hagel, he wants the republican to be the foil for what he wants to do with the defense department which will do serious damage to the department. it looks to me that the president has made choices in part based on people who won't argue with him. >> we'll have much more of that interview ahead. the former vice president will talk about the use of water boarding and his relationship with former president george w. bush. >>> 24 hours after the bombshell announcement that pope benedict is resigning, the focus now turns to choosing his successor. benedict is the first pope in six centuries to step down. his last day is february 28. and this morning there are new reports about the pope's health. allen pizzay is in vat cal city. dow corning. >> r

of the cia will forever be remembered for the blows that we struck against al qaeda and perhaps the greatest intelligence success in american history, delivering justice to osama bin laden. [applause] by then, leon had every right to expect that he could return home, and i admit that when we first asked him to lead the pentagon, his answer was simple -- no. but i kept asking him. i am persistent. that is how michelle married me. i just kept at it, and it is a testament to his patriotism, to his sense of duty that leon agreed to serve on this one last tour. perhaps it was the memory of his parents opening their homes up to g.i.'s headed to the pacific. perhaps it was leon, who served himself, a young lieutenant in the army. perhaps it was the experience of watching his youngest son deployed to afghanistan. what we do know is this -- as our nation's's 23rd secretary of defense, in every action leon panetta has taken, every decision he has made has been with one goal in mind -- taking care of our sons and our daughters in uniform and keeping america safe. just think of the progress under his wa

, when leon panetta was nominated to be c.i.a. director, i talked to a number of our c.i.a. personnel in varies parts of the world and they were concerned. leon didn't have a background in intelligence. i said -- my response was anybody who has been chief of staff to the president of the united states can handle any job in the united states government. and, of course, leon went on to prove that, so much so that for his next position he was confirmed 100-0 as secretary of defense. therefore, that is by way of saying to you, obviously, i support your nomination. you have handled that job of chief of staff very well. the other thing i wanted to say was, there was a problem when you were chief of staff with o.m.b. in that o.m.b. was continuing to try to run this country's space program. i went to you and you started ma sodging, that the nasa got to run the space program without o.m.b. folks saying you do this, you do that. are senator rockefeller cheers to the committee. i want to thank you for that. because what you did was -- you smoothed it out so that senator kay bailey hutchinson and
